Before leaving California, we gave our christmas tree to the ward. I would have kept it but:
- It would not have fit into the moving van
- It was too FAT
- It took a long time to assemble
- It took even longer to put lights on it
- OK--I just wanted an easier tree to put up that had lights already attached!
So now that we are in Utah and Christmas season is here--there is no money for a new tree. But that is OK--cause I am happy to wait for one when we can afford a new one.
In the meantime, we are using my three decorative trees that I had. Don't you think they look lovely? I mean--just look at those decorations! They are just overwhelmingly gorgeous (and of course my favorite color!!!).
We have one present to put under the tree so far. Maybe I will be adventuresome and produce more gifts??????
Today was good - we are now officially part of the Christmas festivities on our block. We borrowed green lights from Kimberly's apartment ceiling and put a wreath on the door. I think the sign is a fair assessment of our thoughts about Christmas this year.
But then I did decorate our fireplace mantle to bring in the Christmas cheer!
